    EXTREMELY RARE 1971 “ New Pence 2p Coin” Collector’s Item
    All 2p coins minted before 1982 say 'new pence', while those stamped after that date should say ‘two pence’. However, an early error means that a number of 2p coins from 1983 still show 'new pence', these coins with that year stamped on are normally worth several hundreds of pounds.

    They aren't SELLING for $15,000. They are actually selling for $2 or so. A person can ASK whatever he wants on Ebay, but what they actually SELL for is the believabilty factor.

    While 2p coins are not uncommon, what makes this specific coin popular is the unique wording on it.

    Rather than “two pence”, the coin says “new pence” on it – as all coins produced between 1971 and 1981 did.

    The coin in question is from 1971, the year the new pence coins began being producted, and this gives it a special status.

    OK so what your are saying, how am I going to find out, f this coin is valuable or not….

    The rare 2p is listed for the whopping total sum of £4,958.47 on the auction site.

    The Royal Mint website explains a little more about the unique nature of this coin.

    “The United Kingdom 2p coin was introduced on 15 February 1971 with the creation of a new decimal currency system.

    “The other two coins issued at this time were the 1/2p and 1p coins.

    So you are noting that the 1983 2p that say “New Pence” are errors and something rare and worth a few hundred pounds. OK.

    Then why do you think your 1971 2p is extremely rare and worth thousands?

    Make sure about the actual DATE on the coin that some folks say is rare ... it's certainly not the 1971. Maybe there's aa 1983 that has a New Pence" reverse that could be somewhat scarce.

  • acadienacadien Posts: 276 ✭✭

    I look around a you are right, this is crazy what there asking on eBay. Its not worth much. Thank for saying so A+ to all. Thanks

  • acadienacadien Posts: 276 ✭✭

    Has Something to do with the way the wrote the above. TWO PENCE and the other version NEW PENCE.

  • acadienacadien Posts: 276 ✭✭

    I found the answer to all of this.

    The original reverse of the coin, designed by Christopher Ironside, and used from 1971 to 2008, is the Badge of the Prince of Wales: a plume of ostrich feathers within a coronet, above the German motto ICH DIEN ("I serve"). The numeral "2" is written below the badge, and either NEW PENCE (1971–1981) or TWO PENCE (from 1982) is written above. However, a small number of 1983 "New Pence" coins exist. These coins are rather rare, and are considered collectors' items.

    The text that you posted clearly says that the error is the 1983 coin that incorrectly says "New pence".

    "All 2p coins minted before 1982 say 'new pence', while those stamped after that date should say ‘two pence’. However, an early error means that a number of 2p coins from 1983 still show 'new pence'."

    Why in the world did you think your 1971 two "New Pence" had any special value? I just don't get it..... :s

    Sorry, it's my fault for opening the thread....

    When you do a search ebay.uk for the 1983 2 New Pence coin, many such similars to the O show up.

    The 1983 mule is in fact quite scarce but not even that not of such value - perhaps 1500 USD or so on the top end.

    The 1971? Yikes, well at least a bit of copper in it is perhaps the best that can be said.

    One shows being sold on Ebay for $14,500 but then again it was relisted for sale from the same seller so the transaction must have been canceled unless the seller miraculously had two very rare coins for sale.

  • acadienacadien Posts: 276 ✭✭

    Well I guest I got to exited at first and didn't do enough research, my apologie to all.

  • cachemancacheman Posts: 3,728 ✭✭✭

    apparently not "exited" enough, eh?

  • farthingfarthing Posts: 3,331 ✭✭✭

    According to my records I have 18 of them laying around here, most in a junk jar of GB decimal coins
